Hi, I'm Paul and I write and direct films. I graduated from the German Film and Television Academy in Berlin (dffb) which is where I also currently live.

I've made a couple of short films, written a number of screenplays and worked as a script doctor. In 2016 my feature debut, the dark comedy Sex & Crime, was released in German theaters. I also co-wrote the comedy Vorstadtrocker which came out before, but was actually shot after my own film. Crazy.

Right now I'm working on a number of projects, including an existentialist musical and a stranger than fiction true crime heist comedy set after WWII in my hometown of Mannheim, Germany.
